Easy Cranberry Mustard Slow Cooker Meatballs – Just 4 Ingredients!

  • Author: Marie Bostwick
  • Yield: Makes about 40 meatballs (varies according to brand) 1x



2 lb. bag prepared, frozen meatballs (Any kind will do. My favorite is Ikea Swedish meatballs)

14 oz can cranberry sauce (jellied or whole berry, your preference)

¼ cup Dijon mustard

1/3 cup brown sugar

*Optional fresh cranberries, parsley, or other fresh herbs for garnish


  1. Place frozen meatballs in the slow cooker. (It’s not necessary to thaw them first.)
  2. In a small bowl, mix the cranberry sauce, mustard, and brown sugar together with a whisk or fork till they are well combined.
  3. Pour the sauce over the meatballs. Cook on the high setting for 2 hours. Add fresh cranberries and herbs at the end, if using. Turn the slow cooker to warm until ready to serve.
